‘I don’t like those big numbers!': Cindy Crawford oozes sex appeal in blue jumpsuit as she reveals to GMA she dreads turning 50 in February.

As one of the most famous supermodels of our time, has pretty much experienced it all—posing with pythons, posing nearly naked—you name it, and she has probably done it. Cindy Crawford, who is living a happy life with Rande Gerber and kids, has not opened much about her past in her autobiography, but has revealed that she has learned how to be famous from her former husband Richard Gere.And on Tuesday Cindy Crawford sat down to discuss what it meant to be a fashion icon at the 92nd Street Y, a community and cultural centre in Manhattan.

The supermodel just released her autobiography, “Becoming,” but it leaves out her four-year marriage to the “American Gigolo” star, who was 17 years her senior. “A lot of the personal things, everything else I learned from that, were for me.Cindy Crawford says she was bullied in school about her signature mole, with kids asking if she had “chocolate on her face”; read more from her new memoir Becoming! It’s not something I want to share,” Crawford, 49, tells Porter magazine in the November issue. “If I felt that there was a great good that could come of it, I might have shared more, but I didn’t think that there was anything for other people to learn or benefit from.” Scholars of the American Supermodel may beg to differ.

I don’t like those big numbers!’ the brunette bombshell – who is promoting her new book Becoming – said. ‘But then the day comes and goes and I’m like, “Wait I’m the same person.”‘ As for why she chose the format she did – her book is a combination of a diary and a photo essay – she said, ‘I never wanted to write a book because I didn’t want to do a biography or a giant coffee table book that just collects dust. In her just-released memoir, Becoming, confesses that before she blossomed into the supermodel, businesswoman, and newly minted author that she is, she had to overcome one big insecurity: her trademark mole.

According to the Daily Mail, Crawford, 49, writes that she used to be taunted by the boys on her school’s football team in DeKalb, Ill., who’d shout at her, “Hey, little Crawford, you have chocolate on your face!” The mom of two admits that she talked to her mother about having the beauty mark, which sits right above her upper lip, removed, but her mom said, “You know what your mole looks like. You don’t know what a scar will look like.” Of course, since then, Crawford’s mole has become her signature, so much so that she says it’s become iconic in its own right. “If I ever had it removed, I wouldn’t feel like me anymore,” she told The Edit. “My fans worry about it a lot, you know—to the point where I’m wondering whether the mole should have its own Twitter account and Instagram page, just like Harry Styles’ ponytail!” That said, there is one person who was less enamored with it: Crawford’s 16-year-old son, , who inherited his mother’s mole. “My daughter, Kaia, didn’t get the mole but my son, Presley, did and he wanted to get it removed,” Crawford recently revealed to the Los Angeles Times. “I took him to a doctor who said exactly what my mom said to me: ‘You’ll have a scar.’ But it was good because he made the decision himself not to have it removed.”

In a new interview with Porter Magazine, she was characteristically coy about the pair’s relationship but revealed she ‘learned a lot from’ him, especially when it came to the tricks of the celebrity trade. At the time, Crawford’s modeling career was taking off, with multiple fashion magazines covers, a hosting gig on MTV’s “House of Style” and a starring role in the movie “Fair Game.” By 1995, she was the world’s top-paid model. how the small town girl out of DeKalb, Ill. was discovered by a model scout when she was 16. While there is some charm to getting married at The Little Chapel of the West and then going to Denny’s afterward for some celebratory pancakes, I never quite felt that I was really married,” she writes. “I remember the next day being at a car wash in L.A. and hearing the radio DJ announcing my wedding and congratulating us—it was surreal.” Despite her humble upbringing, she always aspired to do big things. “Maybe I am a bit of a narcissist (but) I always wanted something bigger,” she said. “I wanted to be successful.

The beauty, who is now married to Rande Gerber, explained exactly why Richard, 66, is distinctly absent from her autobiographical book – Becoming – in which she shares particularly meaningful stories and lessons she’s learned.
